Well Suited, the final standalone in the Red Lipstick Coalition Series from Staci Hart, is available now!
Chemistry is my love language.
I’ve always been able to separate feelings from chemosignals. A shot of dopamine, a dash of serotonin, and a sprinkle of oxytocin—and bam. You’re in love.
And when egg meets sperm, you’re pregnant.
I couldn’t even be surprised as I stared down at the little blue plus sign, because I knew exactly when and how, and with whom it happened.
When: approximately five weeks ago.
Who: one night stand.
How: prophylactic malfunction.
The upside? I don’t have to go looking for a suitable mate.
Genetically, he’s the cream of the crop. His musculature is a study in symmetry and strength, his height imposing and dominant. He is a man who thrives on control and command, a man who survives on intelligence and resourcefulness. A perfect male specimen.
And the whole package is wrapped up in a flawlessly tailored suit.
I’m having this baby, and he insists we’re well-suited to have it together. And what’s worse? He wants more, in the way of love and marriage.
But love isn’t real. It’s just a product of chemistry.
And if he changes my mind about that, we’re both in trouble.
I have been anxiously awaiting this book since the teaser at the end of Work in Progress, and although reading that first will give a little more depth to this story, it truly is a standalone and reading others in the series is not required.
Katherine is one of four best friends, about whom the Red Lipstick Coalition series is based. She is a librarian and loves her job. She is also very rigid and structured, and doesn’t believe that love is anything more than body chemistry and instinct to procreate successfully.
Theo is the twin brother of Tommy from Work in Progress. He and Tommy were raised by their hard working mother after their father abandoned the family when they were kids. Now they all live together in a large divided house to help care for her since she has Parkinson’s disease.
Katherine and Theo meet on a night out with the group of friends and have a one night stand. After that, Katherine blows him off until her positive pregnancy test. Not having a real father himself, Theo is excited to play a big role in his child’s life and has a proposition for Katherine that she can’t refuse.
I had a real affinity for Katherine in Work in Progress, and loved getting to know her better in this book. She has good reasons for being the way she is, but Theo really brings out the best in her. She is very logical and straightforward which makes her seem cold, but she really isn’t. Theo is also very logical and methodical, but growing up with a twin brother and a loving and understanding mother also taught him about love and relationships with other people. He is so good for Katherine, helping her learn how to open up and embrace emotion. And Katherine, as Tommy points out to Theo late in the book, helps Theo to not be so self-centered. Sure, he is giving and loving and supportive, but doesn’t realize he does it on his own terms. They both help each other grow as humans while growing a human (Ha! I couldn’t resist that one).
A surprise appearance by Katherine’s mother really helps Theo understand why Katherine is like she is, but his outside perspective also helps to heal their relationship.
I really enjoyed this book and the epilogue was the perfect ending to the RLC series.

About the Author
Staci has been a lot of things up to this point in her life — a graphic designer, an entrepreneur, a seamstress, a clothing and handbag designer, a waitress. Can’t forget that. She’s also been a mom, with three little girls who are sure to grow up to break a number of hearts. She’s been a wife, though she’s certainly not the cleanest, or the best cook. She’s also super, duper fun at a party, especially if she’s been drinking whiskey.
From roots in Houston to a seven year stint in Southern California, Staci and her family ended up settling somewhere in between and equally north, in Denver. They are new enough that snow is still magical. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, sleeping, gaming, or designing graphics.
